The US renewable energy company refuses to pay hackers’ extortion

To discuss the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, Security Council meeting closed today

The US clean energy firm does not intend to pay any ransom after discovering unauthorised breaches on some of its information systems, according to the Financial Times.

Wind farm developer Invenergy was reportedly hacked and threatened with the release of personal details of its CEO by a notorious ransomware gang over the weekend.

Operations at its 12.2GW operational wind fleet were not impacted during the hack.

Russian-linked REvil claimed it had downloaded 4 terabytes of data including information on projects and contracts and personal information about CEO Michael Polsky.

Last year, insurance firm GCube warned that renewable energy asset owners relying more heavily on digital systems during the coronavirus pandemic face an increased threat from ransomware or denial-of-service attacks.

REvil’s victims in recent months have included Taiwanese Apple supplier Quanta and US meat-packer JBS.
